Diversity in Law School
We use the term diversity broadly to include all aspects of human differences, including but not limited to socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, geography, disability, and age.
This is an exciting and opportune time for LGBT individuals to consider obtaining a legal education. Lesbians, gay men, bisexual, and transgender people have found places in every area of legal practice as well as in legal academia. They have succeeded in organizing their own small law firms, risen within the ranks of legal education, taken seats on the bench, and, of course, worked in law firms specializing in the LGBT rights movement.
